Quoting Quiverfull: Secular People Safe Spaces Silly?

Quoting Quiverfull: Secular People Safe Spaces Silly? May 20, 2017

quotingquiverfullby Doug Wilson from Blog and Mablog – One Innuendo Too Many, Pal

Editor’s note: This is an older post of Wilson’s from back a couple of months ago when the media lost their collective minds over the discovery of Vice President Mike Pence’s use of the Billy Graham Rule. That he cannot be alone with a woman that is not his wife under any circumstances because possible hint of sexy-times. How does Wilson defend this? By attacking anyone not part of the culture with who might ever want a safe space. Oh please just shut up you idiot!

And, as they say in Jersey, thoid, we also have to deal with secular irrationality on these matters. Mike Pence is clearly an honorable husband but, being a conservative, he is that way all the time. But secularists have a toggle switch somewhere in their psyche, and they flip it back and forth like a three-year-old playing with the lights for the first time. In this position, not only is everything sexually charged, but sexually inflamed. Gender politics gets into everything. If a guy sits with his legs apart on the subway, he is man spreading, a micro-aggression not to be tolerated. If he casually refers to “the girls” in his sociology class, the university goes into lockdown. If a guy in that same sociology class asks one of the girls out, he finds himself down at the Diversity Office explaining that he did not intend to mentally rape anyone. “All I said was hi.” But if the toggle switch goes over into that position, then all the secularists suddenly become worldly wise sophisticates (Like magic. Ta da!). “Oh, you poor babies,” they say to the religious conservatives. “You are clearly buttoned up way too tight.” You need to learn how to respond to every innuendo with a knowing laugh. Like we do. Heh heh. Unless we are talking to our attorney about a sexual harassment lawsuit. One innuendo too many, pal.

Sorry Doug, but women and men alone together does not mean someone’s about to get lucky, or get raped. The funniest thing about all of this is that the men that practice this ridiculous idea are usually about as sexy and appealing as a microwave oven or a pile of rotting avocados. Not everyone in this world is trying to seduce someone else.
